may include (i) clarifications on issues pertaining to the implementation of Securities Regulation
Code Rule 68 (the Rule), as revised; (ii) responses to frequently-asked questions during the
submission of financial statements; (iii) views regarding accounting related disclosure practices; and,
(iv) such other information that is useful to attain consistency in the implementation of the financial
